Patheut (Mitr Chaibancha) is the son of village leader Thong. He is just back after many years away from his village. He is mistaken as a robber by Chat (Anucha Ratanaman), local subdistrict headman, and his sister Baanyen. A local influential man (พ่อกำนัน), Meun Phan, terrorizes the population (เขามีอิทธิพล) with his thugs. Thong has also a daughter called Choompu. Cheung, son of Meun Phan, wishes to marry Choompu but she refuses. Rampha (Petchara) is the daughter of Meun Phan. Boonnga (Kaenjai Meenakanit) is the young wife of Meun Phan. Rampha wishes her father to stop acting this way but he rejects her requests. She asks help from Boonnga but without success. Patheut has arguments in a cafe with thugs but a young man called Chai (Choomporn Theppitak) gives him a hand. Rampha asks to stop the fighting so Patheut meets her for the first time. Ruffians put a bomb in Chat's car. Luckily Chat and Patheut escape to death as a thug robs their car and dies in the explosion. Patheut finally understands that Rampha has a good personality (ดีมาก) and is not same as her father. Rampha promises to help Patheut but Patheut needs to promise not to harm her father. Meun Phan suspects Boonnga to have a hidden lover. Ruffians kidnapp Choompu despite Chat's resistance. Thanks to Patheut and Chai, she is released. Choompu and Baanyen find the thugs' hidden refuge but get captured again. Ruffian leader Meun Phan orders to kill Chat and Thong (ปล้นบ้าน). Boonnga tells to Chai where the secret centre is. Chat and Chai release them again. Boonnga is shot by a thug. Police is surrounding the camp. Meun Phan is killed as he understands, thanks to Rampha, that he is taken the wrong path betraying his own country but it is too late to change side and to warn the police. Chai is in fact part of the border police (ตำรวจชายแดน). Following fierce fighting, ruffians are all killed or captured. Patheut is in fact the new district-chief officer (นายอำเภอคนใหม่).
